“A bishop. A priest. A woman. A boy.”

A forced reunion between a Catholic bishop and the woman he soiled when she was 15, while a priest preys on a trusting teen. Snatched from today’s headlines, “Altarcations” examines lust, absolution, accepting apologies, and whether any place is safe.

With Travis Michael Holder, Robert Keasler, Dylan Jones and introducing Drew Hellenthal. Written and directed by Steve Julian and developed at EST/LA’s playwright’s unit.

HIGH RISE

A 3325 m 5885855

There's one word to describe the 80's; EXCESS. In this fast paced world, Henry Lewis sees property as the answer to being a 'somebody'. A modern, stylized tragedy about ambition, greed, and the snowball effects of success.

THE SACRED BEASTS

A 3377 m 524851

The booze and resentment-soaked real life friendship of Ernest Hemingway and Orson Welles is conjured in three scenes spanning three decades with the besotted wordsmiths played by different actors in each stage of their lives.
